ca: Pacific Union International | Novato Real Estate Market Update (October 2011 Novato Home Sales Report) - 11/08/11 10:56 AM
Much like August 2011, Novato, CA home sales continued to surpass expectations in September 2011, which is traditionally a very slow month for closings in Marin County. Indeed, buyers continue to move very quickly on well-priced and/or unique real estate opportunities. The average sales price of Novato homes has swung wildly this year from month to month. For example, the average sale price in June was $626K. In September it was $530K. September’s trades averaged 117 days on market, were about 1,870 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $258 sq. ft. Novato’s  absorption rate (e.g., number of months’ inventory of homes for sale based on last … (0 comments)

ca: Pacific Union Novato Real Estate Update (March 2011 Novato Home Sales Report) - 03/14/11 09:28 AM
Febuary 2011 resulted in excellent home sales numbers for Novato (34 homes sold in February, compared with 22 trades in January). It appears that this momentum is carrying into March as buyers act quickly on well-priced and/or unique opportunities. The average sales price of Novato homes in Febuary 2011 was $534K. These homes averaged 156 days on market, were about 2,092 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $267 sq. ft. Novato’s absorption rate (e.g., number of months’ inventory of homes for sale based on last month’s sales totals) is an astonishingly low 3.35 months’ worth of available inventory overall (114 single family … (0 comments)

ca: San Rafael, CA Real Estate Update (February 2011 Home Sales Report) - 02/11/11 06:24 AM
A suprising uptick in sales occurred last month (January 2011) in San Rafael - we had 32 homes sell compared with 26 in December. The entry level price band (under $600K) remains strong - 26 of these homes are currently in escrow. Meanwhile, the $600K to $800K price band (a mix of entry level and move-up homes) remains buyer-friendly and accounts for another 17 of homes in escrow. Interestingly, the entry level market is virtually the only segment of San Rafael inventory experiencing any meaningful traction - for example, of the 26 homes which sold last month, 27 were priced under … (0 comments)

ca: Novato Real Estate Market Update (February 2011 Novato Home Sales Report) - 02/11/11 06:21 AM
January 2011 was another good month for Novato home sales (we had 22 trades). Typically, January sales are quite low as people focus on the Holidays during December. The average sales price of Novato homes in January 2011 was $525K. These homes averaged 100 days on market, were about 2,051 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $267 sq. ft. Novato's  absorption rate (e.g., number of months' inventory of homes for sale based on last month's sales totals) sits at just under 5 months' worth of available inventory overall (104 single family homes are currently for sale in Novato). This is a low number. … (0 comments)

ca: Marin County, CA Luxury Home Sales (January 2011 | Pacific Union International) - 01/04/11 09:14 AM
With 6 trades in December 2010, the luxury property real estate market in Marin County (properties and estates over $2 million) experienced one of its slowest months. This, despite the fact most economists and consumers feel that that the overall economic and housing environments are improving. Indeed, for real buyers there are extraordinary opportunities available right now. Pricing in the marketplace (especially for homes that have remained on the market through the Winter months) is softer than ever and “value” is evident in the luxury segment. In line with normal seasonal adjustments, the inventory of luxury homes for sale is very … (0 comments)

ca: Marin County, CA. Thoughts. Impressions. Statistics. - 11/11/10 03:08 AM
Very interesting comments from Leslie Appleton Young, Chief Economist @ CAR. Two quotes seem to be relevant to our high end sellers and more mainstream buyers respectively.
High End Sellers - "In the upper end, we have unrealistic sellers who are very nostalgic" for the boom years, said Leslie Appleton-Young, chief economist for the California Association of Realtors.
Main Stream Buyers - One bright spot in the market is an increase in the number of investors seeking real estate, Appleton-Young said. According to the CAR survey, 23 percent of recent transactions were all-cash, an indicator the buyer was likely an investor.
If 23% … (0 comments)

ca: Pacific Union Novato Real Estate Market Update (October 2010) - 10/27/10 06:17 AM
As we settle into Autumn, Novato's real estate market remains the model of consistency. While buyers continue to question pricing in Southern Marin and cite uncertainty as their primary concern, many are shifting their focus and stepping forward into the Novato market, confident that prices have leveled. For example, in the primary move up market (consisting of homes priced between $800,000 and $1 million, with at least 2,500 square feet and 4 beds and 3 baths) prices are UP 3% over last year. Moreover, Novato's price per square foot has hovered within 3% of $310 for several months now. Also, prices … (0 comments)

ca: Marin County, California (Home Sales Update July 2010) - 07/25/10 09:40 AM
We have multiple economic drivers and underlying fundamentals that impact our local real estate markets. Housing prices, interest rates, job growth and inflation/deflation are significant variables in the Bay Area housing market. While we could not predict either the economic shift that began in August 2007 or the duration of the economic volatility caused by the shift, we do have a few very positive fundamentals present today.   Interest rates for conforming mortgages ($729,750) and jumbo mortgages are currently at historic lows since Freddie Mac started recording in 1971 – see rates in the mortgage rate table on page two.

Moreover, we are seeing an improved marketplace in San Francisco which is the bellweather for Mill Valley and Marin.
The number of homes for sale in Mill Valley is down incrementally to 143. After the brief slow … (1 comments)

ca: Pacific Union Novato Real Estate Market Update (July 2010 Home Sales Report) - 07/23/10 04:43 PM

The Novato, California real estate market continues its torrid year with 49 sales in June — up from 38 sales in May 2010. The average sales price of Novato homes in June 2010 was $644,778. These homes averaged 98 days on market, were about 2,162 sq. ft., and averaged roughly $306 sq. ft.
Novato’s price per square foot has hovered between 3-5% of $300 for a year now — in my mind, we are seeing the gradual recomposition of the market in the era of the “New Normal.” Prices are holding steady, particularly in the entry level and move-up price … (0 comments)
